2025 Cadillac XT5 Spied Testing: Photos19
GM is hard at work developing the 2025 Cadillac XT5, which is set to introduce a new second generation for the midsize crossover. Now, GM Authority spy photographers have spotted the next-gen 2025 Cadillac XT5 out and about undergoing testing as a prototype.
As we can see from these images, this 2025 Cadillac XT5 prototype is draped in heavy vinyl camouflage that obscures the front end, the profile, and the rear, hiding any styling changes from view. Any exposed body components are covered in a swirling black-and-white camo wrap.
That said, there are still some interesting things worth pointing out here, starting with the placeholder lighting elements. Up front, we see vertically oriented lighting elements with a large rounded light above a set of smaller rounded lights, while in the rear, we see two small rounded lights.
The side profile also shows us some multi-spoke wheels finished in silver, while up top, there’s a set of roof rails obscured by black-and-white camo. The rear end also incorporates twin exhaust outlets with a trapezoidal shape.
As GM Authority has covered in the past, the next-generation 2025 Cadillac XT5 will be exclusive to the Chinese market, per statements made by GM President Mark Reuss. Under the skin, the 2025 Cadillac XT5 will ride on the C1-2 platform, which is essentially the second iteration of the GM C1 platform that underpins the current-generation XT5. The move is similar to what GM is doing for Chevy Traverse and GMC Acadia, both of which also ride on the GM C1 platform.
Although the overall architecture will remain more or less identical to the current model, the 2025 Cadillac XT5 is also expected to introduce more substantial changes to the exterior styling and interior design. The crossover’s overall size will remain about the same as the current generation.
Meanwhile, here in the U.S., the current-generation Cadillac XT5 will soldier on for the 2024 model year. Per a GM Authority exclusive, the start of regular production (SORP) for the 2024 Cadillac XT5 is set to kick off this coming June.

Long first generation…
If the gen2 CT6 is any indication, missing out on this in North America won’t be a big loss.
So continue to sell the current generation in NA while China gets the new generation, this makes absolutely zero sense! All EV wont happen for another 5 to 10 years, how zbout 1 more generation Caddy!
Exactly, aside from the Escalade isn’t this their biggest seller?
I’m on my second XT5, a 2021 Lux prem with the Platinum package. I guess I can get one more when my lease is up next year.
If I move to China I can drive Cadillacs for the rest of my life, but I plan on staying in the US so I guess 20 Cadillacs will be my limit.
This thing is so far beyond its expiration date. It’s a fine car, but it’s no longer competitive for the price.
The first gen really should have sunset around 2021 and replaced with a redesigned model. Or at least substantially refreshed/facelifted vehicle.
Looking forward to the second-generation official reveal.
You are ,are you planning a trip to China ?
I’m on my second Cadillac CT6. I absolutely like the car. There is so much good about it. Why can’t Cadillac give us this car back here in the U. S. I would definitely purchase a third one. People who purchase Cadillac don’t necessarily care about gas mileage, they care about comfort, room, and size if a car as I do. Gas mileage for me was never an issue. I do wish cadillac would give us back out CT6. The CT5 is nice but not as roomy and nice as a CT6. Cadillac forgot about us traditional buyers. I personally will not buy a SUV ever.
What the hell is wrong with GM ???? The USA wants A Cadillac. They are forcing the loyal GM buyers to go elsewhere !
Shirley, they’re a very poorly run company and care nothing about their customers! It would make more sense to go from gas powered vehicles to hybrids, then gradually to EV’s. GM and Caddy decide we’ll go all in on EV’s from ICE vehicles even if the public is not ready for it.
Your absolutely right,but don’t call me Shirley !
